Red Bull yesterday became the first of Formula One's top-three teams to unveil their car for the upcoming season, a week before pre-season testing starts in Spain.

The RB14, which will be driven by Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, had a temporary blue and black livery with title sponsor Aston Martin featuring prominently.

Red Bull won three of the 20 races last year. The first race this year is in Australia on March 25.
